Crude: The Incredible Journey of Oil
The television documentary charts the path of a typical carbon atom, circulating in the biosphere. It becomes trapped deep beneath the earth as part of an oil deposit, before being pumped out and burnt, returning to the biosphere. The documentary looks at the consequences of humans burning the world's oil supplies, with rising oil prices as demand increases and the resource becomes increasingly scarce, the effects on the economy, and the consequences of the extra carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere.
